The time has come to renew your jurisdiction's Examiners certifications that will expire on December 31, 2015.

Please clearly mark any changes on the list and return it with the Renewal Form. If you have not received your list of expiring examiners or if you have any questions, please contact Denise Hanchulak at firstname.lastname@example.org or (703) 908-5767.

AAMVA is looking for a PACE discipline jurisdiction member to join the Driver Standing Committee. Serving on a committee is an ideal way to influence policy, develop best practices and network with your peers. This position carries a two-year term with the potential to be reappointed for an additional two years. AAMVA is also looking to establish a working group of AAMVA member jurisdictions to help integrate DMV investigators into the Law Enforcement discipline. To that affect, we are seeking eight DMV investigators (we will select a mixture of sworn, non-sworn, and limited authority DMV investigators) and four state police/highway patrol officers who have experience conducting fraud investigations and/or partnering with DMV investigators. More details including application forms are available in the AAMVA Committees and Working Groups page on the Committee Opportunities tab, and the Working Group Opportunities tab.
